bash aliases lost within tmux


I just noticed that my .bashrc aliases (eg. alias www='cd ~/data/public_html') don't work from within tmux. They work fine from screen, though.

I don't think I've got anything special in ~/tmux.conf
Code:
# C-a just like in screen
unbind C-b
set -g prefix C-a

set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"
my .bashrc
Code:
. /etc/profile

#if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
#        . /etc/bashrc
#fi

# CFLAGS
CHOST="x86_64"
export CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fPIC"
export CXXFLAGS="${CFLAGS}"
export PATH=$PATH:~/bin
export MAKEFLAGS="-j3"
export QUEUEDIR=~/data/queues
alias films='cd ~/data/films'
alias www='cd ~/data/public_html'
Thanks

OK, tmux starts a login shell, and a login shell does not source ~/.bashrc

I added the following to ~/.bash_profile

Code:
case $- in *i*) . ~/.bashrc;; esac
which solved the problem.
